The feature exists, application developers have chosen to use the
feature, it may be less secure, but it is not wrong.

Are we just discussing semantics then?  I agree it's not wrong as such,
but right and wrong are usually determined by the environment one is in
and in a security-aware environment (such as I know them), letting the
webserver write to the DocumentRoot would be wrong. Elsewhere it is
perhaps at worst ill-advised.

I prefer "proceed with caution" :)
